Duke suspended three players this week.
Friday afternoon, Duke released a statement, informing fans that freshman star point guard Trevon Duval had been suspended for the team’s upcoming preseason game against Bowie State. Saturday, Coach K issued an update, noting that three players have now been suspended.
Krzyzewski says that all three players – Duval, Jordan Goldwire and Alex O’Connell – will sit due to academic reasons.
“Three guys will be sat out today, Duval, Goldwire, and O’Connell, they’re being sat out for some academic reasons”
